1. Measuring Principle
The Vortex flowmeter is used for measuring the flow velocity of fluids in pipelines. The measuring principle is based on the development of a Karman Vortex shedding street in the wake of a body built into the pipeline. In theory, this process enables measurements to be carried out in turbulent flows with a Reynolds number Re>3000, but linear measurements are only possible where Re>20,000. The periodic shedding of eddies occurs first from one side and then from the other side of a bluff body (Vortex-shedding body) installed perpendicular to the pipe axis. Vortex shedding generates a so-called Karman Vortex Street with alternating pressure conditions whose frequency f is proportional to the flow velocity v. The non-dimentional Strouhal number S (primary head constant) describes the relationship between Vortex shedding frequency F (in Hz) width b of the body, and mean flow velocity v (in m/s)

F = S *v

b
The flexural vibration of the Vortex-shedding body is picked up in the primary head via sensors and analysed in the signal converter. In the case of the gaseous, flowing media, the vibration frequency ranges between 10 and 7000 Hz. To permit the mass rate of flow to be calculated from the volume rate of flow, either the medium pressure and the temperature or the medium density at the installation location of the flowmeter must be known factors.

2. System installation and Start-up


2.1 Description The Forbes Marshall Vortex flowmeter operates on the Karman Vortex street principle to measure the volumetric flow rate of gases/steam and liquids. VORTEX FLOW METER computes the normalized volumetric and mass flow rates from the operating pressure and temperature values, or from the density values. The temperature sensor is standard to provide an online T. Items included with the shipment Compact Vortex flowmeter. Installation and operating instructions. Mounting bolts, washers and nuts. Optional upstream and downstream pipes. Programming chart indicating the factory configuration settings. Gaskets between the primary head and the pipeline Bar Magnet Provided by the customer All cables for the electrical connections. 2. 2 Installation in the pipeline 2.2.1 General 1. Flow direction and meter position The flow must always be in the direction of the arrow, bluff side of the Vortex-shedding body facing the incoming flow i.e. the upstream side. Vertical pipe run: upward flow direction. Horizontal pipe run: see below

Ensure that the bore of the locating pipes are smooth and without deposits or scaling of the welding beads. 3. Straight, unimpeded inlet and outlet runs D=Meter size (Nominal Dia. DN) INLET OUTLET

2/2

INLET

OUTLET

With a flow straightener, the inlet pipe length may be halved. For e.g. for a control valve, the inlet length is 25D instead of 50D. The minimum inlet pipe length including the flow straightner must always be 12D. 4. Pipe vibration Pipe vibration caused, for example, by the action of pumps, valves, etc. will falsify measurements particularly at low flow velocities. Support the pipeline on both sides of the flowmeter in the direction perpendicular to both the pipeline and the bluff body axis. The pipe vibration limit is 0.2g_peak-to-peak up to 8-500 Hz crossover frequency (which equals 0.75 mm) 5. Pipeline along a wall Wherever possible, the distance between the pipe centerline and the wall should be greater than 0.5 m (20). If it is less then first connect all the cables to the terminals in the connection compartment (power supply and outputs) and run them via an intermediate connection box (also see Section 3) before installing the flowmeter. 6. Orientation

Turn the display board through 90 or 180 to obtain a horizontal positioning of the display. Turn the signal converter housing through 90 should that be more suitable for the location of the installation. Ensure a single-phase flow. Liquid droplets in the gas/vapour, solid particles in the gas/liquid, and gas bubbles in the liquid are not permitted. In liquid applications, for e.g. water, to prevent cavitation, the minimum D/S pressure is given by the relation: Pds(bar_g) > =(2.9*DP) + (1.3*Ps)-1.013 where DP= pr. drop of VORTEX FLOW METER in Bar from the sizing program Ps=Sat.pr. in Bar at the operating temperature

7. State of medium

In case of steam or compressed gas, a moisture separator may be used 50D upstream of the meter if the dryness fraction is less than 95%. For any fluid, a filter or strainer may be used to remove the solid particles. This is especially important for meter sizes below 1 where a filter or a strainer is a must.

Gaskets are supplied by us with flanged units.

Centre the flowmeter by sight. Check the flange connections for leak-tightness after the flowmeter installation. 2.2.4 Temperature measurements

The VORTEX FLOW METER is always supplied with a temperature sensor. This sensor is RTD (PT1000 type) and is located within the Vortex bluff body. See the figure given for location of the temperature sensor. This sensor provides an accurate measurement of the temperature of the medium at the Vortex sensor. The flowmeter will continuously measure the medium temperature:

To display the medium temperature To provide an online T compensation for the mass and the normalized flow computations To monitor whether the medium temperature remains within the user specified operating temperature limits 2.2.5 Pressure measurement with built-in sensor

VORTEX FLOW SENSOR may be supplied with an optional pressure sensor. This sensor is typically a strain gauge type and located in the primary assembly as shown in the figure below. Thus, the sensor also provides an accurate measurement of the pressure of the process fluid. The flowmeter will continuously measure the medium pressure:

To display the medium pressure value. To provide an online P&T compensation along with T sensor for mass and normalized volumetric flow computation. To monitor whether the medium pressure is within the user-specified operating pressure limits.

2/5

To determine the pressure of the medium (e.g. to feed the pressure value in VORTEX FLOW METER for an off-line P&T compensation for mass or normalized flow computations), a suitable measuring point must be provided near the flowmeter. Location upstream of flowmeter: Min. distance: 20*DN (DN = meter size) Location downstream of flowmeter: Min. distance: 5*DN (DN = meter size) An allowance must be made for the pressure drop in the flowmeter as a correction value for operating conditions prevailing upstream of the flowmeter.

2.3 Electrical connection 2.3.1 Installation location and Cable diameter Location

Do not expose the compact flowmeter to direct sunlight. Install a sunshade if necessary. Do not expose to intense vibration. If necessary support the pipeline to the left and the right of the flowmeter. The rotating design of the housing makes it easier to connect the two cables for power and the outputs to the terminals in the rear terminal box.

Cable diameter To conform to protection category requirements, observe the following recommendations: Cable diameter: 8 mm to 13 mm (0.31 to 0.51)

Enlarge the inside diameter of the screwed conduit entry by removing the appropriate onion ring(s) from the seal, only if the cables have an extremely tight fit. Fit blanking plug, M 20, and apply the sealant to the unused cable entries. Do not kink the cables at the conduit entries. Provide a water drip point (U-bend in the cable).

Conduit Installation, General Wiring considerations When electrical codes require conduit, it must be installed in such a manner that the meter connection compartment remains dry at all times.

For the terminal connections refer convertor instruction & operating manual

2.4 Start-up

Check that the system has been correctly installed as described in Sections 2. Before the initial start-up check that the following details on the name plate agree with the data specified in the report of settings for the signal converter. If not, reprogramming will be necessary. Refer to Convertor manual. Meter size K-Factor

Fct. 3.1.1 Fct. 3.1.2

The flowmeter is ready for service 15 minutes (waiting time) after switching on the power source. Increase the flow velocity slowly and steadily. Avoid abrupt changes in pressure in the pipeline. If the process product is steam, condensate may form initially and cause faulty measurements when the system is started up for the first time. When powered, the signal converter normally operates in the measurement mode. The poweron sequence to the measurement mode is as follows:

TEST is displayed for approx. 3 seconds followed by VORTEX FLOW CONVERTER the instrument type followed by Ver X.Y.Z the software version of the instrument.
Then the instrument operates in the measurement mode where it displays the parameter being measured.

Current and pulse outputs are galvanically isolated and can, therefore, be simultaneously connected to a receiver instrument which is grounded or separately connected to two receiver instruments. Ensure that the 24 V, 4-20 mA loop is grounded at one point only (i.e. either at the input of the signal convertor or at the input of the indicator, or at the output of the power supply). Do not ground the loop at more than one point. 3.2.1 Current Output The current output is galvanically isolated from the pulse output and sensors. The maximum load at terms. Max. load in R =

4. Operation of the signal convertor


4.1 General 4.1.1 Starting up signal convertor When the power is switched ON to the signal convertor, it displays TEST, VFC 097 and Ver X.Y.Z and then goes to the measurement mode. In this initial sequence, carries out self diagnostics to check the preamplifier section, sensor integrity and then loads the configuration data from the non-voIatile memory.The first measured parameter displayed is the one being displayed when the power supply was switched off the last time. It is possible to enter the programming mode by pressing the key. 4.1.2 Measurement Mode In the measurement mode, the parameters that the convertor measures/computes are shown on the display in the appropriate units. As per the configuration, the display can be either in the noncyclic/cyclic mode. In the non-cyclic mode of display, use key to see the next parameter or error message on the display. In the cyclic mode, the display shows all the parameters one after another, wherein each parameter/ error message is displayed for about 6 seconds. 4.1.3 Error Handling The convertor can detect errors during the power-on diagnostics as well as when in the normal measurement mode. If one or more errors are present, the vertical bar in the top left corner of the display (in the measurement mode) starts blinking. If enabled, the error information is shown on the display interleaved between the display of two parameters. The first line displays the total number of errors and the second line displays the error message. Refer to the list of Error Messages. 4.1.4 Programming or menu mode All the configuration/settings/test functions in the form of a menu function x.x.x are accessible in the programming mode. The operator can view or alter the present settings, data values by the use of functions available in this mode. All changes made in the programming mode are stored in the non-volatile memory after exiting the menu and have appropriate effect on the operation of the signal convertor. While being programmed (i.e. while in the menu), the instrument will stop making further measurements and the current output will be frozen to the last value, the pulse output will also stop.

DATA LEVEL

6/1

6.1.1 Program function description The program functions are given in a numeric order as follows:

Function number and title Description of the function


When you enter any numeric value in the floating point format, the accuracy of viewing any floating point value entered is + 0.003% . The precision of the measured variable depends on the choice of precision (position of decimal point) while entering the operating value of that parameter.

Fct. 1.1.1 MEAS. INST. measuring instrument type


Set the instrument to measure the volumetric or the normalized volumetric or the mass flow rate as per the options:

VOLUME MAX.FLOW TOTAL.UNITS RANGE F

NORM.VOLUME

MASS FLOW UNITS 20 mA FLOW

Usually, this function is used once initially. If you need to change the basic measurement type later on, you should check/reprogram all the flow rate and the totalizer related functions such as -

MIN.FLOW 4 mA FLOW TOT. VALUE

Fct. 1.1.2 MAX.FLOW maximum flow rate


Enter the maximum flow rate desired. The max. flow should be within the measuring range for the given primary data (3.1.x functions) and the application data (3.5.x functions). The current output range (4-20 mA) corresponds to the 0% flow (Q0%) and the 100% flow (Q100%) respectively. If the flow rate exceeds the MAX FLOW, an error HIGH FLOW is annunciated on the display with an error symbol flashing at the top left corner. The base units are m3/hr, nm3/hr and kg/hr respectively for Volume, Norm. Volume and Mass. For units other than the specified units, replace the base unit with the user unit by changing the literal text. Also, enter the coefficient of that particular unit with respect to the basic unit depending on the measuring instrument type that you have selected. Refer to the formula given: User Unit *A1 coeff.+A0 offset = Base unit Example: If the user unit is litre/hr A1 coeff. = Base unit/ user unit = 1/1000 = 0.001 A0 offset = 0

Fct. 1.1.3 MIN. FLOW minimum flow rate


Enter the minimum flow rate in the same units as for the max.flow above. The min. flow should be within the measuring range for the given primary data (3.1.X functions) and the application data (3.5.X functions). If the flow is below the min. flow then an error LOW FLOW is annunciated on the display with an error symbol flashing at the top left corner. Note: This value cannot be zero for Vortex flowmeters. This value is normally set to the minimum flow rate (determined from the sizing) for the size of the primary used.

6/2

Fct. 1.1.4 TIMECONST. time constant for flow rate


Enter a low-pass filter time constant in seconds to be applied to the flow rate. A value of zero indicates that the low-pass filter is not to be applied. With this function, it is possible to compromise between a steady indication (on the display/current output) and the response time (to flow changes). It should normally be within 0-20 sec. The factory set value is 2 sec. You may increase it if you observe abnormal fluctuations on display.

Fct. 1.2.6 ERROR MSG. display of error messages


Choose YES so that the error messages appear between the display of parameters in the normal measuring mode, otherwise select NO.

Fct. 1.2.7 CYCLE DISP. cyclic/non-cyclic display YES means the display will cycle automatically. This means a measured parameter is shown in the selected units for about 6 seconds and then the next parameter in the display cycle is shown for 6 seconds and so on. NO (non-cyclic display) means the parameter is continuously shown on the display (to see other parameters or to change setting use the key). You may see error messages in between the changeover from one parameter to next if error(s) are present and Fct. 1.2.6 ERROR MSG. is YES. Fct. 1.3.2 RANGE I current output range selection
Here one selects one of the three possible range options. To set the current output as 4-20 mA with/without an error indication on the current output. When a range with a suffix of 22E or 3.55E is selected then it means that the current output will give 22 mA or 3.55 mA error output if any error(s) are present in the instrument. The range options are listed below: 4-20 4-20/22E 4-20/3.55E

Fct. 1.4.1 FUNCTION P Pulse output


Choose YES to make the pulse output active. NO makes the pulse output inactive (0 Hz). Limits: The max. frequency of the pulse output is 0.5 Hz. To ensure that the pulse output does not exceed 0.5 Hz at max. flow, the coefficient in totalizer units can be adjusted. The pulse output will be an exact replica of the integer value of the internal totalizer. If the flow rate exceeds in such a way that the pulse rate exceeds 0.5 Hz then the pulse output will be erratic. For Example: For a flow rate of 360 kg/hr, pulses will be 360 pulses/hr. as the pulse output is exact replica of integer totalizer. So the freq. of the pulses will be 0.1 Hz. This is within given limits. But for flowrate of 3600 kg/hr., pulses will be 3600 pulses/hr. The freq. becomes 1 Hz. This is not within the specified limits. In this case, A1 coeffecient should be adjusted in func. 3.2.5 Tot. value. This should be selected such that the freq. of the pulse o/p lies below .5 Hz. If this factor is selected as 0.1 then the frequency of the pulse output will become 10 times less. i.e. 0.1 Hz. which lies in given limits. Please note that the same factor will get applied to Integer totalizer also.

Since the atmospheric air contains water vapor, what the compressor actually sucks in is a mixture of air and water vapour. Under thse conditions the Free Air Delivery specification of the compressor is not directly and easily known. Almost all manufacturers specify FAD at standard suction conditions only. What the user gets to use as eventual plant air or process air needs to be found out and, hence, metered with ease and a reasonable accuracy of at least +1%. VFM FAD-METER can measure FAD online, compensated for humidity and RPM apart from its use as STD FLOWMETER. The software built into the meter evaluates the FAD automatically online. The menu-driven user-friendly software prompts the user for information like the pressure and relative humidity, design and actual RPM, and the discharge pressure. The steam tables and the compressibility data are programmed into the memory as a standard feature. The meter is also available with an optional pressure sensor which measures the discharge pressure online eliminating the need to feed in the value manually.

6.2.1 Program function description The program functions are given in a numeric order as follows: Function number and title Description of the function When you enter any numeric value in the floating point format, the accuracy of viewing any floating point value entered is + 0.003% . The precision of the measured variable depends on the choice of precision (position of decimal point) while entering the operating value of that parameter.

Fct. 1.1.1 MEAS. INST. measuring instrument type Set the instrument to measure the volumetric or the normalized volumetric or the mass flow rate as per the options:

VOLUME MAX.FLOW

NORM.VOLUME

MASS TOTAL.UNITS RANGE P TOT. VALUE

Usually, this function is used once initially. If you need to change the basic measurement type later on, you should check/reprogram all the flow rate and the totalizer related functions such as -

MIN.FLOW

Fct. 1.1.2 MAX.FLOW maximum flow rate


Enter the maximum flow rate desired. The max. flow should be within the measuring range for the given primary data (3.1.x functions) and the application data (3.5.x functions). The current output range (4-20 mA) corresponds to the 0% flow (Q0%) and the 100% flow (Q100%) respectively. If the flow rate exceeds the MAX FLOW, an error HIGH FLOW is annunciated on the display with an error symbol flashing at the top left corner. The following units are available to choose from depending on the programming of Fct.1.1.1 MEAS. INST. for volumetric flow: M3/HR LITRE/HR CUFT/HR FT3/HR CFT/HR US GAL/HR UK GAL/HR SPECIAL

M3/MIN LITRE/MIN CUFT/MIN FT3/MIN CFT/MIN US GAL/MIN UK GAL/MIN

M3/SEC LITRE/SEC CUFT/SEC FT3/SEC CFT/SEC US GAL/SEC UK GAL/SEC NM3/SEC NORM.L/SEC SFT3/SEC SCFT/SEC

for normalized volumetric flow: NM3/HR NM3/MIN NORM.L/HR NORM.L/MIN SFT3/HR SFT3/MIN SCFT/HR SCFT/MIN SPECIAL

for mass flow: KG/HR KG/MIN KG/SEC T/HR T/MIN T/SEC LB/HR LB/MIN LB/SEC SPECIAL The base units are m3/hr, nm3/hr and kg/hr respectively for Volume, Norm. Volume and Mass. For units other than the specified units, replace the base unit with the user unit by changing the literal text. Also, enter the coefficient of that particular unit with respect to the basic unit depending on the measuring instrument type that you have selected.

6/10

Refer to the formula given: User Unit *A1 coeff.+A0 offset = Base unit Example: If the user unit is litre/hr A1 coeff. = Base unit/ user unit = 1/1000 = 0.001 A0 offset = 0

Fct. 1.1.3 MIN. FLOW minimum flow rate


Enter the minimum flow rate in the same units as for the max.flow above. The min. flow should be within the measuring range for the given primary data (3.1.X functions) and the application data (3.5.X functions). If the flow is below the min. flow then an error LOW FLOW is annunciated on the display with an error symbol flashing at the top left corner. Note: This value cannot be zero for Vortex flowmeters. This value is normally set to the minimum flow rate (determined from the sizing) for the size of the primary used.

Fct. 1.1.4 TIMECONST. time constant for flow rate


Enter a low-pass filter time constant in seconds to be applied to the flow rate. A value of zero indicates that the low-pass filter is not to be applied. With this function, it is possible to compromise between a steady indication (on the display/current output) and the response time (to flow changes). It should normally be within 0-20 sec. The factory set value is 2 sec. You may increase it if you observe abnormal fluctuations on display.

Fct. 1.2.6 ERROR MSG. display of error messages


Choose YES so that the error messages appear between the display of parameters in the normal measuring mode, otherwise select NO.

Fct. 1.2.7 CYCLE DISP. cyclic/non-cyclic display YES means the display will cycle automatically. This means a measured parameter is shown in the selected units for about 6 seconds and then the next parameter in the display cycle is shown for 6 seconds and so on. NO (non-cyclic display) means the parameter is continuously shown on the display (to see other parameters or to change setting use the key). You may see error messages in between the changeover from one parameter to next if error(s) are present and Fct. 1.2.6 ERROR MSG. is YES. Fct. 1.3.2 RANGE I current output range selection
Here one selects one of the three possible range options. To set the current output as 4-20 mA with/without an error indication on the current output. When a range with a suffix of 22E or 3.55E is selected then it means that the current output will give 22 mA or 3.55 mA error output if any error(s) are present in the instrument. The range options are listed below: 4-20 4-20/22E 4-20/3.55E

Fct. 1.3.5 VARIABLE I Current Output selection function

APPEARS: If the meter type is GROSS HEAT METER

Fct. 1.3.7 FS POWER


Enter the power value at which you want the current output at its maximum 20 mA APPEARS: If the meter type is GROSS HEAT METER 6/11

Fct. 1.4.1 FUNCTION P Pulse output


Choose YES to make the pulse output active. NO makes the pulse output inactive (0 Hz). Limits: The max. frequency of the pulse output is 0.5 Hz. To ensure that the pulse output does not exceed 0.5 Hz at max. flow, the coefficient in totalizer units can be adjusted. The pulse output will be an exact replica of the integer value of the internal totalizer. If the flow rate exceeds in such a way that the pulse rate exceeds 0.5 Hz then the pulse output will be erratic. For Example: For a flow rate of 360 kg/hr, pulses will be 360 pulses/hr. as the pulse output is exact replica of integer totalizer. So the freq. of the pulses will be 0.1 Hz. This is within given limits. But for flowrate of 3600 kg/hr., pulses will be 3600 pulses/hr. The freq. becomes 1 Hz. This is not within the specified limits. In this case, A1 coeffecient should be adjusted in func. 3.2.5 Tot. value. This should be selected such that the freq. of the pulse o/p lies below .5 Hz. If this factor is selected as 0.1 then the frequency of the pulse output will become 10 times less. i.e. 0.1 Hz. which lies in given limits. Please note that the same factor will get applied to Integer totalizer also.

Fct. 1.4.4 VARIABLE P pulse output selection function.

6.3.1 Program function description The program functions are given in a numeric order as follows:

Function number and title Description of the function


When you enter any numeric value in the floating point format, the accuracy of viewing any floating point value entered is + 0.003% . The precision of the measured variable depends on the choice of precision (position of decimal point) while entering the operating value of that parameter.

Fct. 1.1.1 MEAS. INST. measuring instrument type Set the instrument to measure the volumetric or the mass flow rate as per the options:

VOLUME MAX.FLOW TOTAL.UNITS

MASS MIN.FLOW TOT. VALUE FLOW UNITS

Usually, this function is used once initially. If you need to change the basic measurement type later on, you should check/reprogram all the flow rate and the totalizer related functions such as -

Fct. 1.1.2 MAX.FLOW maximum flow rate


Enter the maximum flow rate desired. The max. flow should be within the measuring range for the given primary data (3.1.x functions) and the application data (3.5.x functions). The current output range (4-20 mA) corresponds to the 0% flow (Q0%) and the 100% flow (Q100%) respectively. If the flow rate exceeds the MAX FLOW, an error HIGH FLOW is annunciated on the display with an error symbol flashing at the top left corner. The following units are available to choose from depend on the programming in fun 1.1.1

FOR VOLUMETRIC FLOW

M3/HR LITRE/HR CUFT/HR FT3/HR CFT/HR US GAL/HR UK GAL/HR SPECIAL


FOR MASS FLOW

M3/MIN LITRE/MIN CUFT/MIN FT3/MIN CFT/MIN US GAL/MIN UK GAL/MIN

M3/SEC LITRE/SEC CUFT/SEC FT3/SEC CFT/SEC US GAL/SEC UK GAL/SEC

KG/HR T/HR LB/HR SPECIAL

KG/MIN T/MIN LB/MIN

KG/SEC T/SEC LB/SEC

For units other than the specified units, select unit SPECIAL, replace the base unit with the user unit by changing the literal text. Also, enter the coefficient of that particular unit with respect to the basic unit depending on the measuring instrument type that you have selected. Refer to the formula given: User Unit *A1 coeff.+A0 offset = Base unit Example: If the user unit is litre/hr A1 coeff. = Base unit/ user unit = 1/1000 = 0.001 A0 offset = 0 6/19

In this function only the flow display unit can be selected. The options available are.

Unit displays the unit selected % Max Flow displays the % flow.
Fct. 1.1.3 MIN. FLOW minimum flow rate
Enter the minimum flow rate in the same units as for the max.flow above. The min. flow should be within the measuring range for the given primary data (3.1.X functions) and the application data (3.5.X functions). If the flow is below the min. flow then an error LOW FLOW is annunciated on the display with an error symbol flashing at the top left corner. Note: This value cannot be zero for Vortex flowmeters. This value is normally set to the minimum flow rate (determined from the sizing) for the size of the primary used.

Fct. 1.1.4 TIMECONST. time constant for flow rate


Enter a low-pass filter time constant in seconds to be applied to the flow rate. A value of zero indicates that the low-pass filter is not to be applied. With this function, it is possible to compromise between a steady indication (on the display/current output) and the response time (to flow changes). It should normally be within 0-20 sec. The factory set value is 2 sec. You may increase it if you observe abnormal fluctuations on display.

Fct. 1.2.6 ERROR MSG. display of error messages


Choose YES so that the error messages appear between the display of parameters in the normal measuring mode, otherwise select NO.

Fct. 1.2.7 CYCLE DISP. cyclic/non-cyclic display YES means the display will cycle automatically. This means a measured parameter is shown in the selected units for about 6 seconds and then the next parameter in the display cycle is shown for 6 seconds and so on. NO (non-cyclic display) means the parameter is continuously shown on the display (to see other parameters or to change setting use the key). You may see error messages in between the changeover from one parameter to next if error(s) are present and Fct. 1.2.6 ERROR MSG. is YES. Fct. 1.3.2 RANGE I current output range selection
Here one selects one of the three possible range options. To set the current output as 0-20 mA or 4-20 mA with/without an error indication on the current output. When a range with a suffix of 22E or 3.55E is selected then it means that the current output will give 22 mA or 3.55 mA error

4-20

output if any error(s) are present in the instrument. The range options are listed below: 4-20/22E 4-20/3.55E Fct. 1.3.5 VARIABLE I Current Output selection function

Selects any one of the two options available for the current output. Options are listed below:

6/20

fct 1.3.5. VARIABLE I is NET POWER.

Fct. 1.4.1 FUNCTION P Pulse output Choose YES to make the pulse output active. NO makes the pulse output inactive (0 Hz).
Limits: The max. frequency of the pulse output is 0.5 Hz. To ensure that the pulse output does not exceed 0.5 Hz at max. flow, the coefficient in totalizer units can be adjusted. The pulse output will be an exact replica of the integer value of the internal totalizer. If the flow rate exceeds in such a way that the pulse rate exceeds 0.5 Hz then the pulse output will be erratic. For Example: For a flow rate of 360 kg/hr, pulses will be 360 pulses/hr. as the pulse output is exact replica of integer totalizer. So the freq. of the pulses will be 0.1 Hz. This is within given limits. But for flowrate of 3600 kg/hr., pulses will be 3600 pulses/hr. The freq. becomes 1 Hz. This is not within the specified limits. In this case, A1 coeffecient should be adjusted in func. 3.2.5 Tot. value. This should be selected such that the freq. of the pulse o/p lies below .5 Hz. If this factor is selected as 0.1 then the frequency of the pulse output will become 10 times less. i.e. 0.1 Hz. which lies in given limits. Please note that the same factor will get applied to Integer totalizer also. Fct. 1.4.4 VARIABLE P Assign pulse output to either of following options

When the menu function finishes, the normal current value depending on the flow rate and the programming of the current output function will be restored.

Fct. 2.1.3 TEST P pulse output test


Caution: When this test is initiated, the pulse output will run at the repetitive rate of 0.5003 Hz. So, appropriate actions should be taken depending on how the pulse output is used. When the menu function finishes, the normal frequency value depending on the flow rate and the programming of the frequency output functions will be restored. Connect the electromechanical counter to the pulse output. (Refer to the connection diagram.) Select CONT.YES to test the frequency value or CONT.NO to end.

7. Description of Program Menu Functions


7.1 Numerical format

Display of numerical values Real (i.e. fractional) values are displayed in the first line of the display consisting of 8 digits. The number is displayed in the floating point format except the totalizer which is in an integer format (max. value... 4294967295) otherwise an exponent notation is used. See the examples given below. Floating format: 1234.5678, 100.00 Exponent format: 1234E-10, 12345E12 In most practical applications, it is very rare that the parameters need be displayed in the exponent format.

Input of numerical values Entering a numeric value is very flexible. Enter a positive or a negative number in the floating point format or the exponent format as required or as convenient. Example: 1.2345678, -1234.567, 0.0001234 123456E1, -12345E4, 1234E-4

7/1

7.2 Display Organization: The display consists of the following two fields. Field 1: Field 2: 10-character, 5x7 dot matrix alphanumeric display used primarily for showing numeric values and also for messages. 10-character, 5x7 dot matrix alphanumeric display used for showing units, messages, etc.

Programming: The measurement mode settings are as follows: To allow the selection of the units for all the measured parameters Refer to Fct. 1.1.2, 3.2.5, 3.5.4 and 3.5.5 Select display mode (cyclic/non-cyclic) and the error messages to/not to appear in the display cycle. Refer to Sect. Fct. 1.2.6 to 1.2.7

Measurement mode: The display shows the measured parameter(s) in its selected unit. The parameter is displayed continuously in the non-cyclic mode. [Fct. 1.2.7]. To select other parameter(s) of the display cycle, if any, use the key. In the cyclic mode, all the parameters selected in the display cycle are displayed in a sequence one after another every 6 seconds. Programming mode: The numeric line indicates the menu/functions level such as Fct. 1.1.1 [current menu level digit blinks] and the alpha-numeric line indicates the menu/function title such as MEAS_INST. Error indications: A blinking bar at the upper left corner in the measurement mode indicates that error(s) are present. Error messages are displayed interleaved between changing from one display parameter to another, if Fct. 1.2.6 ERROR.MSG is YES. For description of the error messages, refer to Sect. 4.1.5. 7.3 Flow range and meter size The flow rate (min. flow to max. flow) that the flowmeter will be able to measure depends on the primary data (3.1.x functions) and the application data (3.5.x functions). Thus, the flow range specified under the Fct. 1.1.2 MAX. FLOW and Fct. 1.1.3 MIN. FLOW must be within the measuring range. The flow range for any given application is determined by the sizing of the meter for that application. When the flow rate exceeds the max flow, an error condition -HIGH FLOW- is generated. When the flow rate falls below the min. flow, an error condition -LOW FLOW- is generated. The Vortex sensor signal is weak at this condition and if the flow rate reduces further, Vortex signal related errors such as CHECK INST., LOW SIGNAL will occur. 7.4 Primary information The primary data gives VORTEX FLOW METER the basic information about the Vortex primary sensor. Use Fct. 3.1.1 NOMINAL.DIA for specification of the nominal DN/ANSI size and Fct. 3.1.2 K-FACTOR for the calibration factor of the primary. Depending on whether the primary has temperature sensor, the settings need be done in Fct. 3.6.1 T-SENSOR. These sensors enable the VORTEX FLOW METER to provide an online T compensation. Depending on whether the primary has Pressure Sensor, the settings need be done in Fct. 3.6.2 P-SENSOR . These sensors enable the VORTEX FLOW METER to provide an online P compensation.

7.5 Application information This is the data of the process medium, its operating conditions and physical properties. It consists of: Process medium Fct. 3.5.1 FLUID and Fct. 3.5.2 MEDIUM Operating temperature and pressure conditions. Refer Fct. 3.5.6 TEMP. OPR and Fct. 3.5.7 PRES. OPR. Density of the medium at the operating conditions. This is required only if the software within the instrument does not support the medium (Fct. 3.5.1 is selected as OTHER GAS OR OTHER LIQUID). Refer to

Fct. 3.5.6 DENS.OPR.


Normal or reference P&T values required for normalized flow measurements only (depending on Fct.1.1.1). The usual values are temp.norm = 0 C or 20 C and pres.norm = 1 atm. Density under normal conditions. This is required only for normalized volumetric flow and if the software within the instrument does not support the medium (Fct. 3.5.2 is selected as OTHER GAS OR OTHER LIQUID). Refer to Fct. 3.5.9 DENS.NORM. Not all of the above data needs to be given for any given application. Only the relevant data should be punched during the actual programming. 7.6 Internal Electronic Totalizer The internal electronic totalizer counts volume, normalized volume or mass. The totalizer value is saved in the non-volatile memory continuously. The totalizer can be displayed in the unit desired as per the programming of Fct. 3.2.5 TOT.VAL. The totalizer counting is interrupted for the duration of a power failure. Counting may optionally be stopped and thereafter restarted by the use of Fct. 3.2.6 TOT. ON/OFF Resetting [to 0] or presetting of the totalizer is possible by using Fct. 3.2.5 TOT. VALUE.

7.7 Current (analog) output I

The current output gives an analog representation of the flow rate. An output of 20 mA always corresponds to Q100% and that of 4 mA to Q0%. The current output between Q0% & Qmin is 4 mA.

TESTING OF CURRENT OUTPUT I Fct. 2.2 TEST I can be used to check the current output. Integer values between 4 and 20 mA are possible to be monitored on a current meter. During the test, the current output changes to the test value(s). The normal current value is restored automatically (as per programming of the current output) when the measurement mode is resumed.

7/4

7.8 Pulse output P The pulse output value is an exact replica of the internal integer totalizer. Every time the totalizer is incremented by one, the pulse output will give a pulse. For programming of the pulse rate, set the coefficient in Fct.3.2.5 TOT.VAL. The pulse output is generated by tracking the totalized flow and, thus, provides a true reflection of the internal totalizer value. The totalizer value is saved, continuously. 7.9 Coding desired for entry into programming mode

Fct. 3.2.2 ENTRY.CODE.1 set to YES for the coding. The entry code consists of 9 key strokes of Refer to Section 3.2.1, functionality of the keys. 3 keys in the given sequence,
7.10 Behavior of outputs during programming Programming of the VORTEX FLOW METER is offline meaning that the instrument stops working when it is in the programming mode. This means that the VORTEX FLOW METER will stop measuring the flow rate and temperature; the totalizing flow and the control outputs (current and pulse) as per the programmed configuration. Thus, this means that the VORTEX FLOW METER will keep the totalizer value and the current pulse output as per the last value before entering into the programming mode. EXCEPTION: Test functions TEST I and TEST P will affect the current and the pulse outputs respectively only for the duration of the testing.

8.1 Range limit calculation for Gases Use the following equation to obtain the operating density x at the operating temperature and pressure: x = n where n, x = Pn, Px = Tn, Tx =

Px Pn

Tn Tx

Density of the gas at normal and operating conditions respectively Pressure of the gas, in absolute units, at normal and operating conditions respectively Temperature of the gas, in Kelvin, at normal and operating conditions respectively

Use the following equation to obtain the operating volumetric flow from the normalized volumetric flow and vice-versa:

Qn = Qx x

Px Pn

Tn Tx

where: Qn and Qx are the normalized and the operating volumetric flow rates respectively. The ratio of the compressibility factors is assumed to be equal to 1. The operating data of the process medium must be known in order to calculate the measuring range.

Density x of medium at flowing conditions, in kg/m3 Dynamic (absolute) viscosity of the medium at the flowing condition, h in mPA *s (or in centipoise) Maximum volumetric flow rate Qmax in m3/hr. Minimum volumetric flow rate Qmin in m3/hr. Refer to pages 6/10 to 6/13 for the dimension of the meter inside diameter.

The following limits apply to operation: Reynolds number at min flow, Re>20000 for linear measurements Minimum detectable flow velocity Vmin (See page 6/9 Diagram III) Maximum flow velocity Vmax = 135.7306 /op for sizes DN 25 to 200 (1 to 8) = 83.87146 /op ...for sizes DN 10 to 20 (3/8 to 3/4) In both the cases, Vmax is clamped at 75 m/s. For densities at and above 50 kg/m3, Vmin is fixed to 0.94192 m/s for all sizes. Calculating the Reynolds number: Re = 353.67 * Qmin (m3/h) * x (kg/m3) (mm) * (mPa*s)

Calculating the minimum flow: Qmin (m3/hr) = 1 * Vmin (m/s) * 2 (mm)2 353.67 Calculating the maximum flow: Qmax (m3/hr) = 1 353.67 * Vmax (m/s) * 2 (mm)2

8.2 Range limit calculation for Saturated Vapour In the same way as for gases, use the above equations to establish the range limits for the volume flow rate. Refer to the vapour tables for the appropriate density and calculate the volume flow rate from the mass flow rate. Check the range limits if the operating parameters change.

11. Function Checks


11.1 Current output check

Fct. 2.1.2 TEST I can be used to test the current output function of VORTEX FLOW CONVERTER. With this function, it is possible to generate following test values: 0/2/4/10/20/22 mA. Refer to section 1.2 for the connection diagram.
The current output electronics is factory-calibrated and should be within + 0.02 mA. Otherwise recalibration of the current output is necessary by Forbes Marshall Service. 11.2 Pulse output check

Fct. 2.1.3 TEST P is meant for checking the pulse output. 0.50607 Hz will be generated at pulse output. This can be checked by connecting the electromechanical counter between the pulse output terminals.

11/1

11.3 Functional checks This section describes some functional checks that can be performed without using any special equipment. It must be noted that these checks are very preliminary and do not check the total functionality of the primary head or the signal converter. 11.4 Primary head functional checks

11.4.1 Vortex sensor To perform the preliminary testing of the Vortex piezo sensor, the signal cable of the piezo sensor should be disconnected from the signal converter electronics. To do this: always switch OFF the power source before commencing work! 1. remove the cover from the electronic compartment. Ensure that the screw threads of the electronic compartment cover are well greased at all times!

Connector for display

C (nF)

0.8 to 1.5

2.0 to 3.4

2.7 to 4.5

Resistance between the centre pin and each outer pin >200 M ohm. Also, the resistance between each sensor wire pin and the earth should be >200 M ohm. 5. Reassemble the converter in the reverse order

11/2

11.4.2 Temperature sensor The PT-1000 temperature sensor can be checked by measuring its resistance. Always switch OFF power source before commencing work! Follow the steps 1 and 2 i.e. the same as in the above Section 5.1.1 3. Remove the temperature sensor cable at the location Y of the preamplifier board. Pull the cable by its end connector and not by the cable itself! 4. Resistance between the 2 pins should be within 1K [0C] 1.193k [50C] depending on the ambient temperature. For other temperatures resistance values as per DIN43760. 5. Reassemble the converter in the reverse order.

11/3

12. Trouble-shooting
It is assumed in this section that the convertor has already been installed. (for installation details, refer to Sections 2 and 3 in the Sensor Manual). Given below are some trouble-shooting hints. SYMPTOM: The display is blank.

Supply voltage (between terminals 1/2) is not available. Electronics faulty

SYMPTOM: The current output is not correct. Check the current output electronics (refer to Sect.7.7) Check that the current output loop is not overloaded [1200 ohm max.]

SYMPTOM: The pulse output is incorrect. Check the pulse output electronics (refer to Sect. 7.8) Check the programming of the pulse output (Functions Fct. 1.4.1.) Check that the pulse output is not overloaded. For load ratings of the pulse output, refer to specifications on Page 3/2

SYMPTOM: INV.CONFIG (invalid configuration)

Configuration data in the non-volatile memory is inadvertently corrupted. Go to the programming mode and recheck (reprogram, if necessary) all the settings. If the error persists contact Forbes Marshall Service.

SYMPTOM: Display contrast is progressively fading.

Never expose the display directly to the sunlight! Install a sunshade if necessary.

12/1

12.1 Trouble-shooting hints It is assumed in this section that the flowmeter has already been installed. (for installation details, refer to Sections 2 and 3). Given below are some trouble-shooting hints. SYMPTOM: A non-zero flow indicated when no actual flow in the pipe.

Mains interference due to improper earthing. The protective earth PE terminal should be properly grounded. Excessive mechanical vibration in the pipe. If so, support the pipeline near the flowmeter perpendicular to both the axis of the pipe and the axis of the bluff body. This problem can be solved by reducing the factory set gain. For e.g. Factory set gain for Gas/Steam is 11 and for liquid it is 3. This can be reduced to 6 for Gas/Steam and 2 for liquid.

Caution: By reducing the gain, the minimum measurable flow rate will go up by the factor which is approx. equal to square root of ratio of the gains. (old gains/ new gain). If the min. flow with reduced gain is above the min. flow which is required to be measured, then reducing the gain is not the permanent solution. Then the installation should be corrected and also the vibrations should be eliminated. SYMPTOM: CHECK INST. error is displayed when no flow in the pipe. The display should normally indicate 0.0 flow rate, LOW FLOW and LOW SIGNAL errors when there is no flow in the pipe. The additional CHECK INSTALL error (flow rate = 0.0 or some steady or fluctuating value) is an indication of:

Improper/inadequate earthing Excessive pipe vibration

SYMPTOM: Flow rate indicated is 0.0 even with flow in the pipe. The Vortex sensor cable disconnected or is not properly connected. Flow sensor faulty some checks are given in Sect. 11.4

SYMPTOM: The flow indicated responds to changes in the flow but the indicated value does not correspond to the actual flow rate. Also CHECK INST. error may appear intermittantly.

Check the programming of Fct. 3.1.2 K-Factor which should be same as that on the name plate The meter is not properly centered on the pipeline. The axis of the meter bore should be aligned with that of the pipe. Gaskets at the meter are protruding into the pipe bore. The gaskets must not project into the effective cross-section of the pipe. Irregularities on the surface of the pipe bore. The pipe bore should be free from irregularities at the welded joints, dirt, deposits and excessive surface roughness. The Vortex signal is falsified due to a bi-phase medium. Bi-phase media are not permitted. Use a moisture separator for wet steam applications to remove the moisture droplets from the steam. Use suitable filters in gas applications to remove solid particles from the flowing gas. Incorrect angular position of the meter.Refer to Sect. 2.1 (I) for the allowable mounting positions. Insufficient upstream/downstream pipe lengths. Check that the upstream/downstream pipe lengths are of the correct minimum length as given in Sect. 2.1 (3). Check the flow direction and the direction of the arrow on the primary.

12/2

Addendum to Installation and Operating Instructions Precautions for Safe and Desired operation of VORTEX FLOW METER with VORTEX FLOW CONVERTER signal converter Do
Ensure that sufficient Upstream and Downstream straight lengths are provided Check that the housing of the primary head is perfectly centred between the process flanges Provide proper supports to the pipeline at both ends of the meter to keep the pipe vibration level well below the maximum limit specified Ensure that the unit is installed in the process pipeline with fasteners securely and firmly tightened causing no leakage of the process fluid through the gaskets Check the chemical compatibility of the material of the wetted parts with the process fluid Maintain proper Downstream pressure to avoid cavitation Degrease the meter properly in case the process fluid is hazardous like Oxygen Ensure that the controlled valve is opened slowly not allowing the start-up velocity from being very high in case the process fluid is hazardous like Oxygen Ensure that tightening torques are applied for M6-1.5kg-m, M8-2 kg-m, M10-5.5 kg-m

DO NOT
Use the meter with the process fluid being bi-phase like Gases-Vapours with liquid droplets or solid particles and gas bubbles in liquids Install the meter where the process medium is pulsating with fluctuations in the process pressure Allow any of the parameters like Flow-Density-Pressure-Temperature- Reynolds Number beyond the limit value specified for the meter on the Nameplate and the Test and Guarantee Certificate Tamper with any parts of the primary head of the meter Replace the fasteners with any other make or brand without the consent of the manufacturer Allow the process pressure to exceed the flange rating.
